Electrical conductivity of LiMn2O4, which is a promising cathode active material for lithium ion batteries, was monitored in situ during electrochemical lithium extraction and reinsertion reactions in 1 M LiClO4 propylene carbonate solution. The in-situ conductivity measurement was achieved by means of an interdigitated microarray electrode coated with a uniform and dense film of LiMn2O4. The conductivity of Li(1-x)Mn2O4 was found to exhibit a peak-shaped profile as a function of lithium content. The conductivity of Cr3+-doped spinel, LiMn1.95-Cr0.05O4, decreased monotonically with decreasing lithium content. These results are discussed by considering the effects of phase transformation on the conductivity of these materials.
